These groups held monthly community meetings to discuss their rights and agendas, such as participating in the planning process, disability identification, ID card distribution, school discounts and scholarships, and skill development training. They gathered issues affecting people with disabilities (PWD) and presented them to the respective municipalities during local planning processes.

They advocate for meaningful participation in the planning process, inclusion in government structures and committees, accessible education and healthcare, public service centers with accessible infrastructure, and equal opportunities for livelihood support and employment.
– Thirty-seven champions of inclusive development received training on disability inclusiveness, related legal and institutional arrangements for people with disabilities, and effective advocacy for their rights. They released a nine-point declaration outlining their rights and discussed various issues, including ID cards, government structure participation, service provision requests, budget allocation, and involvement in the planning process with ward chairpersons.
– Ward chairs, ward secretaries, women ward members, male ward members, inclusive development champions, as well as representatives of social leaders, youth clubs, and community leaders are now informed about disability-inclusive development.
